The boat hovered over the dark, barren lands of Svartalfheim. Loki sat at the stern, one hand resting on the tiller as he leaned casually forward. Thor was not looking back at him, but gazed affectionately at the human asleep on the floor, curled up beneath his cloak. If Loki focused hard enough, he could see a red sheen to her skin, where the Aether pulsed within her.

There had been Odin's spear Gungnir, the Casket of Ancient Winters, the Other's scepter, the Tesseract…but the Aether, with the power of light and darkness and the energy to wipe out galaxies, was the most dangerous of them all. And here it was, swirling in the blood of a tiny, brown-haired mortal.
